Frostpunk: The Board Game Funded on Kickstarter in 54 Minutes

Frostpunk: The Board Game Funded on Kickstarter in 54 Minutes

The never-ending freeze took over Kickstarter with lightning speed. Frostpunk: The Board Game – a tabletop adaptation of a best selling survival city-builder that is forged by Glass Cannon Unplugged with full support from 11 bit studios – became reality in under an hour!

It took exactly 54 minutes to reach the initial 200k Euro goal once the Kickstarter launched earlier today. In the upcoming days, additional backers will help to reach stretch goals that will add extra flavor to the experience. One of these goals is a one-of-a-kind companion app that allows distant players to enjoy multiple copies of the game together in a shared environment.

The Frostpunk: The Board Game Kickstarter campaign will end on Thursday, October 29th.

“In our wildest dreams we didn’t think that it would happen that fast! Frostpunk is a well-known IP, and we can guarantee that the unplugged adaptation will live up to its name with gameplay focused on strategic decisions and grim narration. For us, the campaign launch is just the beginning of the road, but we couldn’t be happier doing it while knowing we produce this game for such an amazing community. From the deepest depths of our hearts – thank you for such a wonderful reception of our game”. Jakub Wiśniewski, CEO of Glass Cannon Unplugged.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
